Naked for Satan brings you Naked in the Sky
August 2010 saw Naked for Satan open on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy. It was like nothing Fitzroy had really seen before. More infused vodkas than one would know what to do with and insanely cheap pintxos. These bite-sized pieces of tapas reminiscent of a sleepy European afternoon, reach a maximum of $1 each on the weekend and they run on an honesty system. One dollar a toothpick.
More recently the naked crew have opened their rooftop bar Naked in the Sky, to an audience that was clearly crying out for something just like it. On a Friday night busy can be an understatement, but the second you find yourself outside on the roof, you know why. The 180-degree views are breathtaking. It’s not your usual city views either. Naked in the Sky is the tallest building for miles, leaving a beautiful and almost untouched skyline. The sunset is worth the trip alone.
Let’s be honest though, views are not all you’re after. When it comes to the drinks list here, their vodka tends to take centre stage. Cocktails are created around different flavours of infused vodkas but their bar is stocked wide and high with any spirit you could ask for though; so don’t be afraid to order off menu. They also whip up their own unique twist on Sangria, fitting nicely with the warm weather and the Spanish morsels.
The wine list is heavily Australian and, no surprise Spanish focused. Try a Camo Viejo Cava Brut from Spain or if Rose is your thing sip on a Muga 2010 Rioja, Spain. Beer and cider don’t get left behind with quite a sizable list to choose from. Fat Yak, Peroni, Dirty Granny Cider and Bulmers cider are all on tap while there are more bottled beers available like the Boatrocker Pilsner or the Kooinda Pale Ale.
These guys also know how to keep the drinking folk happy when it comes to food. Share style plates are the way to go here. The eggplant chips with honey and blue cheese or the fried cheese and walnut wedges with quince aioli are decedent options while the salt cod burger or a simple plate of jamon will hit the spot.
Sip your drink, order some tapas and enjoy being naked in the sky – we had to say it.
